I purchased this tent in late 2011 and used it about 12 times for personal and work related activities. It has kept me dry during several late winter/early spring backpacking trips in western VA and northern NC. Lighter tents exist but for the extra durability and resistance to high winds, this tent is worth the weight and money. The large vestibules allow for a space to keep your muddy boots/wet items and for cooking, if needed.
I pulled out my tent the other day to check it for an upcoming trip and noticed the underside of the rain fly was tacky and beginning to flake off. I called Black Diamond USA and explained the situation and they sent me a brand new tent (not just a new rain fly) via FedEx within a week, free of charge. I was shocked! The company stands behind their products and I would highly recommend this tent to others, along with other Black Diamond gear that I own.

by Lonnie A great do everything tent
I purchased this tent to have a little space to myself when camping with my son's Boy Scout troop. It has since proven itself to be a wonderful all around tent that has performed well in all types of conditions.
I have used it on cool spring nights, I have slept in downpours, strong winds, 90 plus degrees, and in the winter as well (eight degrees). It never let me down in any of those situations. I got some condensation when I winter camped, but I forgot to open the vents!
I purchased it for soloing, (yes it is a bit heavy for one) and find that the room inside with the two vestibules turns it into a night at the Taj Mahal.
I have also section hiked the SHT with my better half and shared the space, no problems with roominess. And I get to share the weight!
I did a lot of research before buying a tent, this tent has more than surpassed my expectations.

I put this up for the first time by Headlamp in Jasper National Park. Easy assembly and adjustment under less than Ideal first Pitch conditions. Great Space to weight for me and Perfect ventilation for the SubAlpine use I put it to on my only bag night so far this year. Next Summer Alpine passes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brett Great tent, poor fly
I have had this tent for three years and enjoy the tent very much. The fly (or at least the water proofing layer) is poor quality. I treat my gear well and the tent/fly is always hung to dry and stuffed loosely in a mesh bag separate from the tent and hung in a closet in a temperature controlled room. The backing has delaminated and is coming off in clumps. I have tents by sierra designs, marmot, and big agnes that are used and stored the same way and are not having problems. So, the tent is great. Just don't plan on using the fly more than a couple seasons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GuyG In summer and in winter
I use it in summer time with out the fly and it is cool for you can see the stars over your head.
In winter time the tent stand like a rock in 80klh (50mlh) of wins (with 8 guy-lines). but under heavy rain the inner tent get wet until you put on the fly on...
